Hines Reveals Interiors of La Colombe d’Or Hotel & Residences

Rottet Studio’s Vision Blends Contemporary Architecture with Old-World Charm

(HOUSTON, TX) – Hines, the international real estate firm, has released a set of renderings for the La Colombe d’Or Hotel & Residences, revealing the interiors of the 34-story tower for the first time. The 285-unit high‐rise luxury multifamily project broke ground in February 2018 next to the historic La Colombe d’Or Hotel in the Montrose/Museum District neighborhood of Houston.

“The interiors of the La Colombe d’Or Hotel & Residences combine the charm of old-world Houston with the grace and elegance of new contemporary design,” said Lauren Rottet, Principal of Rottet Studio, interior architect for the project. “Keeping in mind the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of Mediterranean architecture, of which the original La Colombe d’Or mansion was fashioned, the interior views are focused out to the lush greenery of the neighborhood and the landscaped courtyard in between the new tower and the existing mansion.”

New renderings reveal interiors reflective of Rottet Studio’s signature style, with clean lines, warm materials and an abundance of natural light taking center stage. A two-story lobby offers parlor seating by the concierge desk, a well-crafted mailroom in which residents can socialize while checking their mail, and a comfortable living room with fireplace and views of the surrounding live oaks. A dynamic light-filled corridor with faceted ceilings, walls for art, and a long shelf for decorative objects and books leads from the new tower lobby to the existing hotel.

Drawing people into the relaxed and enjoyable lifestyle of La Colombe d’Or, the 10th-floor amenity deck features a resort-style pool, private dining area, well-appointed display kitchen, private meeting rooms, social lounge with complimentary coffee bar, state-of-the-art gym and spa-like relaxation zone. The ground level will feature exclusive courtyards with sculptures, fountains, a cigar bar and a fireplace centerpiece, as well as a 14,000-square-foot private park. Additional luxury amenities will include a 24-hour concierge, valet, and access to the hotel’s room service and poolside service. The new building will also provide 18 additional luxury rooms for guests of La Colombe d’Or Hotel.

While contemporary in its origins, La Colombe d’Or Hotel & Residences will depart from the strict rigor of modernism to create undeniably welcoming and livable spaces. Residences will span from one-bedroom to three-bedrooms, ranging between 740 and 3,100 square feet, with 10 penthouses split between the tower’s top two floors. Each single-level floorplan will be spacious and light-filled, featuring flexible living spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize views of the property’s lush greenery. Natural materials and finishes will create the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional styles with Quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and wide-planked wood flooring complimenting Italian-made custom cabinetry throughout.

“La Colombe d’Or Hotel & Residences will evoke an elegant, stylish and sophisticated lifestyle reflective of the landmark property,” said Kevin Batchelor, senior managing director, Hines. “Hines is committed to delivering a superior product and we are thrilled to be a part of the next chapter in the legacy of La Colombe d’Or.”

The project is within walking distance to Houston’s Museum District – currently home to 19 museums, world-class restaurants and night life and the Upper Kirby District. The Montrose neighborhood also provides future residents with direct access to major transit arteries and public transportation.

The Zimmerman family, owners of the one-acre site, have owned and operated the adjacent La Colombe d’Or Hotel for 36 years. Built in 1923, the landmark property serves as one of the world’s premier luxury boutique hotels. The building’s historic structure will remain, and an extensive renovation and expansion is underway in alignment with the character and standards of the new future multifamily project.

La Colombe d’Or Hotel & Residences is a joint venture with Hines, TIAA Global Asset Management and the Zimmerman family. Construction on the residential building is slated for completion in the third quarter of 2020. Pre-leasing will begin October 2019.
